I recently had a gallery opening for a group show at Art Whino (artwhino.com) in Alexandria, Va over the weekend. It was amazing. I was able to meet a ton of great people and I was extremely surprised at the ridiculous turn out of people. The actual gallery itself is massive with at everywhere from the hallways to the bathrooms. It is very impressive and so professional. The staff at Art Whino and the owners have done a great job and have brought an incredible art scene to that area. I gave out PaperMonster stickers the entire night and everyone had a great time. The gallery even had a live painting session feat J. Coleman. The solo show room was also massive. As you can see above, there is a video of the opening that I put together from the group show. I didn’t have a chance to get footage of all the artist in the show but it gives you a good taste of what to expect. Be sure to check out the show if your are in the area or view images of works in the show at artwhino.com. Thank you to everyone who can and showed some love, and stay posted for news on upcoming projects and shows!!!

A shot of the live painting by J. Coleman. It was so loud you could feel the floor vibrate. Amazing.
People really gravitated to Whirlwind on the left. I think it was the stickers!!
